Videos: VLDA appointment, VAWA Grant, Cross Connection Control Plan, Jail Addition, Code Red, 911 addition @ LCC Work 2023-11-13.
At the Lowndes County Commission meeting this week,
John Crawford wants to be reappointed to the Valdosta-Lowndes Development Authorty; it’s a joint appointment with Valdosta, and the City will be notified after the County vote.
The public does not know what was bid on for the 911 Center addition,
beyond “a new storage building, renovation of four (4) offices, and resurfacing of the existing parking lot.”
The Finance Department’s Bid Postings links to nothing for this item except
a one-page PDF entitled “SECTION A INVITATION FOR BID”,
which says, “Bidding documents may be obtained through Studio 8 Design, LLC in Valdosta, GA, 229-244-1188, email: firstname.lastname@example.org.”
We do know it will cost $192,780.00.
We don’t even know how much the jail addition will cost;
apparently the vote before the Commission is to hire a Construction Manager,
but we don’t know how much that will cost, either.
Costs are known for the Code Red renewal (same as last year)
and for the VAWA Grant match (less than last time).
There are no rezonings this week, because no county rezonings were proposed at the preceding Planning Commission meeting.
Here is the agenda.
We do not have the board packet yet, because I neglected to file an open records request for it, which I have now done.
Why that should be necessary remains mysterious,
since many other counties larger and smaller in Georgia and Florida have
been posting their board packets on their own websites for years.
